I attended the OrlandoCon with my Sketchsouth buddies Joel, Ed, Nathan, and Steven. It wasn’t be most well-marketed or organized con but the venue was classy and we had a pretty good-sized booth. I also got to meet the great John Beatty for the first time. He’s a great guy and an awesome artist, to boot. He’s been one of my inking heroes for a long time. If you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting him yet, be ready for the stories! He has a lot of them.
John also introduced me to his friends Craig Zablo who runs StalloneZone, one of the most popular Sylvester Stallone fansites, and John Higashi, who has one of the best Star Wars original art collections I’ve yet seen. I drew a “Get Carter”-era Stallone for Craig and an Obi Wan and World’s Finest commission for John.
Unfortunately I don’t have a scan yet of that World’s Finest piece so I’ll post that piece once I have it.
Man, it’s way too late. I guess I’ll continue this on my next post…
